Re: [MOL] DIANE!



June:  Barb (a friend) kept her body cast from Statin Island, I begged her
to let me paint a design on it and turn it into a piece of art.  She
wouldn't have anything to do with that theory.  Hmmmmm, perhaps my husband
will bring his back?????  Keep me posted on how things are going,
Warmly, lillian

We invite you to take a look at our Album.

more....
